Your Marketing This Year

Free Marketing Budgeting Spread Sheet

A common complaint of many businesses is that they need more clients. This is even true of Debt Counsellors who would like to help more people with debt review. Though many people might need your services, the challenge is normally to get people to use you rather than someone else to help them with your service (or product). This is where the power of marketing comes in. If you want people to know who you are and what you do then you need to tell them. You cannot just do nothing and hope they will find you on their own.

Obviously, there are many ways to advertise your services. Online adverts on Facebook and Google ads may help, print adverts in fliers and newspapers could be the right thing for you. Maybe you need to incentivise your current clients to bring you new referral clients or it could even be going from door to door or presenting at meetings. Whatever method you choose you will want to have a budget which you can track to see how much you are spending.
